you know you can't get enough of me

I have a good friend named Frank. He is the boyfriend of one of my closest girlfriends, Sidney. Frank is a true Renaissance Man; multi-talented and one of those people who never gets bored, and has zero patience with those that do. I adore Frank, and when he is doing things that drive Sidney crazy, I will sometimes take his side. One of Frank's many side passions are making videos of artists and people, and he turned his camera on me last week. The intention was to make a video of my dry throwing method, but it morphed into a video clip about... me. We are working on a more instructional-type video, and it will be done before the end of this month, but meantime, watch this:

  3. Loved the video and can't wait to learn more about your throwing technique. Your thoughts at the end totally spoke to me, since "in the moment" is the main theme of my artist statement. Thanks for posting this.

  5. Great, great video! Informative yet informal. Are you adding this to your side bar? You looked so relaxed in front of the camera!

  6. Great video. I'm curious to know more about your dry throwing technique, too. "Playful" and "whimsical" are exactly the qualities that I love about your work. Good stuff -- thanks for sharing!

  7. "Process" is a difficult thing to explain but you did a wonderful job of defining your relationship to your medium. The video is a GREAT addition to an already GREAT Blog! thanks for sharing -again.

  10. What a great video clip! I wish he would do one of those on every potter I follow...

    Please do explain your dry-throwing method at some point; I've never heard of such a thing and am dying to know how it works!

    That was great! I love watching artist videos, and this one was really well done, I'm looking forward to the dry throwing one. During this one I kept thinking (said in a parched voice) "so. DRY." I am so curious to see how you do it!

  14. Thank you for all of your comments and positive support. I can't help but feel a bit self-conscious because few like to see or hear themselves on video, including me. But Frank is a great artist himself and I'm very proud of the video-- so thanks for watching!

  15. Exceptionally cool! Really well done and edited. Frank definitely has a good feel for story telling, film, framing etc. People would pay for such a great promo piece.

    And it's really interesting to see the woman behind the designs. Love your studio space.

  17. You are blessed to have such a talented friend to collaborate with on this project. When is your reality tv show going to launch? I'm sure there is enough drama in the pottery studio to keep the Whitney fans entertained!
